Welcome to Stay WIld
Stay Wild is owned and operated by Kathryn Strachan – B.F.A, M.L.A
Stay Wild is about more than just design, we are about commitment, reliability, sustainability and wildness. We love hearing your stories and connecting them to your design ideas–
But first, I would like to share a little bit about myself, my name is Kathryn and I am the owner and creative director of Stay Wild.
Whether it is making mud pie with my kids, painting rocks, sifting through beautiful books, searching out perfect moments, laughing at squiggly designs, learning a new skill or revitalizing an old one, I have a lot to draw excitement and creativity from.
I am a mother, an artist, a designer and a nature enthusiast. I am passionate, caring and sometimes obsessive about all the tiny parts that make up my life. I believe in raising children that love art and nature and I try to lead by example, sometimes I succeed, sometimes I struggle.
I studied photography at Ryerson University in Toronto where I learned how to ask questions, test limits and to really be myself, whether that person was happy, mad, silly or sad. I left the program with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a sense of purpose in a less than perfect world. I went on to study Landscape Architecture at the University of Manitoba. There I learned to successfully deliver an idea, stay up all night (for lots and lots of nights) and to do whatever it took to give my best. I learned that I would never stop learning–ever. I left with a Masters in Landscape Architecture, and a goal — to bring back the wild in my life.
Whether it is the perfect landscape design, or promotional material for your new business venture, Stay Wild can help you make it happen!
